My horse won't open his mouth for the bit because he forgot to brush his teeth and doesn't want me to know.

I can't cross water with my horse, her extensions/weave will come out. (visual image I'm getting is of a prissy horse with her fake tail floating down the river)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Ok. I have been really busy lately and don't have time to make really good illustrations yet to accompany my "book" idea, but here's a quick look at two.
the second one is in need of a lot of work.

Tiny, I love the illustrations! What fun!

While riding yesterday, I realized I have 2 more for you:
1) My horse won't put her feet into that little water puddle because she can't see the bottom.....

and coming at it from the other direction,
2) My horse won't put her feet into that little water puddle because the sun is reflecting off it and it looks like glass/ice!

True story.

End of story - we did go through the water puddle. From both directions. After not too many more tries. She really doesn't like that water puddle!

We don't do Dressage because my horse looks best in bright colors.

I don't turn my paint out at night because the neighborhood kids mistake him for a cow and try to tip him...

I can't brush my horse's mane because it'll become frizzy.
